We Can't Be Bothered About Rangers
Updated Tuesday, 21st February 2012
Terry Butcher proudly captained Rangers but he is focused exclusively on Inverness Caledonian Thistle's needs now.
With a significant amount of media focus on the administration situation at Ibrox it can be easy to forget that there are 11 other clubs in the SPL who are also fighting for survival. Inverness manager Terry Butcher says he has no time for sympathy for one of his former club Rangers as he looks to get his side into the top-six. Rangers visit on Sunday in front of the Sky cameras and Butcher will be saving any words of comfort until after the final whistle. Caley Thistle are within five points of Kilmarnock, currently in sixth, but Dundee United, Aberdeen and St Mirren are also in the hunt for a top-half finish.
Butcher said: "We have to pull our fingers out and get going if we want to finish in the top six, it's always been dog-eat-dog in the SPL but we have seven matches before the split so it's tight. If we get on run now and finish in style we could well get there. It starts against Rangers and they are a good side no matter what state they are in, but we have our own agenda and that is to get three points. These are troubled times at Ibrox but that is their concern and we can't be bothered about that because we have to do our professional best to win. I've been there before as manager of Motherwell and no one had sympathy for us when it came to matches. I don't think Rangers will expect any sympathy and they certainly won't get any from us when it comes to the game but obviously after the match, certainly."
